LoRa Basics™ Station

The LoRa Basics™ Station protocol simplifies management of large scale LoRaWAN networks. LoRa Basics™ Station is the preferred way of connecting Gateways to The Things Stack.

Some of the advantages of LoRa Basics™ Station over the legacy UDP Packet Forwarder are:

  • Centralized Update and Configuration Management
  • TLS and Token-based Authentication
  • Centralized Channel-Plan Management
  • No Dependency on Local Time Keeping

LoRa Basics™ Station contains two sub protocols for connecting Gateways to Network Servers, LoRaWAN Network Server (LNS) and Configuration and Update Server (CUPS).

The Things Stack has full support for the LoRa Basics™ Station protocol. This section contains information for connecting your gateway using LNS or CUPS.
